Delayed or wrong Parkinson's diagnosis impacts individuals' treatment and research toward new therapies. Investigators are working to validate biological measures of disease that could help confirm diagnosis and identify Parkinson's earlier in the disease process.
"Biomarkers are tools to understand not only who has Parkinsonís and who doesnít but also to track the symptoms of Parkinsonís as they progress and to understand whether a particular drug treatment is working or not," says Samantha Hutten, PhD, MJFF senior associate director of research programs, in our latest podcast.
